What does my meme and fast food restaurants have in common?
It's the RED and YELLOW. Think about it. 95% of fast food and most food places have red and yellow either predominantly in their marketing, signs and menus or somewhere in the building.
That's because those two colors together ignite the brain's HUNGER center.
Do you know that there are hundreds and hundreds of food psychologists working AGAINST your diet and fitness goals? They help design packaging, marketing, smells, colors and flavors to trigger your addictive and craving neurons.
Lovely isn't it? Robb Wolf covers this extensively in his new book #wiredtoeat
(go buy it). So, what ACTION can you take? Here's my free coaching:
Recognize the craving and SAY to yourself or others around you, "This is just some brain pattern firing off. It's not really me or us that wants this." #2.
Leave the area. If you can't, then I suggest having a pre-planned meal in mind like a chicken salad, grilled chicken etc. and definitely enjoy yourself, but don't be yanked around by subliminal messaging
Have a plan and list for all grocery stores and NEVER shop hungry. Ever.
Thank your brain. In my coaching practice we never go against the body. Thank your brain for wanting to feed you ALL THE DARN FOOOD!!! -It's just trying to help you survive. But also say, "I got this subconscious, okay? Thanks though! I love you." And then give the industrial food industry complex the BIRD. 🦅 #NotThatBird
